Learning Guide Excerpt
To demonstrate how our Learning Guides can be used by teachers to improve lesson plans, we have set out below a paragraph from the Learning Guide to Liszts' Rhapsody.
Franz Liszt (1811 - 1886) was a renowned pianist, composer, teacher and conductor who actively pursued his career from the age of nine until his death at the age of 75. Liszt was a brilliant performer who was regarded, in his prime, as the world's greatest pianist. Liszt created the concert form of the piano recital in 1839. Until that time even the best pianists performed only with singers or orchestras and with the piano facing the audience. Liszt turned the piano to the side so that the audience could see him and made the pianist the center of the performance.
The Learning Guide to the film Liszts' Rhapsody contains sections on Benefits of the Movie, Possible Problems, Helpful Background, Discussion Questions, Links to the Internet, and Bridges to Reading. The Discussion Questions are divided into three categories: Subject Matter, Social-Emotional Learning, and Moral-Ethical Emphasis.
